    3CF00F46-E9ED-48D1-8E1C-AF050EDD1226.jpeg Great idea for this thread. I really enjoy the photos and enthusiasm of our members. Guns are made for shooting, i.e., paper targets, tin cans, and PIGS. Some are specifically made for self defense while others are specific to particular uses, like my cowboy assault rifle.

    Keep ‘em coming, fellow members! Your participation is genuinely appreciated!

    This thread is a great pick-me-up, just what I needed. Here are some from the files.

    One is out shooting the H&R handi .30-30 and Pietta SAA .357 a couple months ago.

    The other is a CZ527 M-1 American (hence the flush magazine), that I bedded into a walnut stock. Haven't had a chance to shoot it in the new stock unfortunately, have some 69 gr matching/varget loads worked up for when I do.

    I will have to find the rest of the pics I have.
    Remington started building the rifles around 1917, if I remember right. The contract was for 300,000 rifles. Remington had somewhere around 150,000 rifles built when the French canceled the order, due to the clam that the chamber and barrels did not meet French specifications. This clam was BS. The light at the end of the tunnel could be seen, the war was coming to an end. The French just didn't want to pay for the contract.
    The Remington Lebel Berthier 07-15 is just as good, if not better, then the French made rifles.
    After being stuck with the rifles Remington sold them on the open market. They even started making ammo for the rifles. Many were sporterized by gunsmiths so, finding one in original configuration is hard. When I bought this rifle in 2014, for $400, it was worth approx. $600, which was double the value of a French manufactured rifle. Now it is worth about $1000 but with the way surplus rifles have been selling at auctions, it would sell somewhere between $1200to $2500.

    Here’s another hard to find French Berthier rifle.
    It a Turkish Forestry Carbine. I’ve heard a few different stories about how the rifle got into Turkish hands, but they did.
    This one went through the Turkish arsenal in 1948. The Berthier rifles were used by Turkish Forestry Agents to stop poachers. The poachers were not after animals, they were after Turkish Walnut.
    It is said that Forestry Agents were the only ones armed with these carbines, which were still chambered in 8mm Lebel. And was against the law for anyone to have the rifle or ammo, unless you were a Forestry Agent.
    Someone put a lacquer finish on the stock, but the correct finish should be oil. I plan to correct the finish some day.

    Very cool, Gunny! Thats the only one of those Ive ever seen outside of books.

    IIRC, the Turk Forest cops also wound up with a bunch of Enfields captured at Gallipoli and US-made Martinis.

    Well, so glad you asked. Because I just pulled it out of the sheath and the blade is all rusted! I reckon the sheath is highly hygroscopic or the dye used is water based and probably both are the cause.

    The markings say CFK and a punisher skull logo.

    So, I do NOT recommend this knife. Or at least not storing in the sheath.

    Fortunately it was not expensive. I think it was 50-60 bucks. I only got it for the beautiful scales.

    Don’t think it will buff out, but I’ll give it a whirl down the road.

    Too embarrassed to post a pic.
